Re: O line

Good post and conversation, it seems we can all agree that with those two bombs and that we have some true playmakers that can beat the deep coverage. We need to beat that blitz and challenge some of those safeties like earlier posted with Patten and Moss. I think those two plays will open and give the Offense alot of confidence to go deep more often. I think Dallas did a good job of game planning for blitzes with the screens and quick passes which showed in that 1st drive. They new we were coming, but the Skins countered and cut back on the blitzes as heavily and played solid D with occassional blitzes to keep them off beat alittle. Our O line is solid, but taking on a team that blitzed as much as the Cowboys you wear down and miss some blitzes. Key is make a few teams pay beating them with the deep ball and once Gibbs gets adjusted and figures out which plays he has in his arsenal will do just that. Throwing it away to avoid the blitz is not effective way to get Defenses from stop blitzing and urges them to continue if you throw it away to kill your drives.

I sat in the high ups at the Bears game and had a good view of the whole field. I am tellings you this would have worked. I watched Moss just run by guys every time he was running a lateral route. It was ridiculous.
glad you saw it, i can't imagine CBs keeping up with those two all game. Brunell underthrows it low and outside to keep the db from getting at it but the curls and comebacks just have to stop, whether gameplanned or not. that also keeps LBs and DBs in the box for the pickoff and just cause more problems for Portis!

It definitely seemed like there were a lot of Cowboys playing up in the box to blitz and snuff out our runs. It was kind of funny how one of the commentators noted how calm Gibbs was in the 3rd or 4th quarter.
i really hope you're not suggesting Gibbs was intentionally calling that game to be a 56 minute "play action pass". to throw short all game just to throw long at the end? *very* unlikely.

well ideally you want to, *when you have a LEAD*. its that LEAD we need to get first!

I don't think we will grab many leads if we don't start firing downfield, we have to back the defense up whether we complete them or not, we have to force them back, that is the only way we will get Portis going, and then that will allow Gibbs to mix his play calling and control the ball, it's kind of like a fighter, you have to knock someone out before others will respect your power, and we really haven't done that yet, monday night was a step in that direction, but teams aren't going to back off until we prove we can do it, and are willing to do it consistantly.
agree 100%

Gibbs said he tried a handful of down the field throws before the 4th quarter, but it wasn't nearly enough to have the safeties back off. after monday night, i challenge Brunell to try and overthrow these guys once or twice a drive at least.

It's not just trying them. They have to hit sometimes before a team will respect them. Now that we have hit a few it should back some people off a bit but we need to hit a few more in the next few games to cement it into the scout book. If we hit one or two of those a game(they don't need to go for TDs but just simply big gainers) then we'll be in good shape. I think play one against Seattle we go deep just so they know it's coming.
